El Portillo Beach is a long golden-yellow sandy beach in the north of the Dominican Republic on the Samana Peninsula, just minutes from downtown Las Terrenas. The place is especially popular with local families due to the shallow waters, while the beach is still quiet and little-known among tourists. From October to January, El Portillo provides excellent conditions for kitesurfing, during this period, moderate windy weather prevails on the beach.

Amazing beach with good snorkeling from shore and golden sand. Very clean. Usually, fairly calm waves.
Disgusting quantity of garbage everywhere.

Beach with calm, crystalline waters. Good to come with children. Excellent for walks. You can park along the beach. It is a very natural place, there are no booths or places of sale. You must bring your things to consume. It is a good place to relax. Good for diving or snorkeling on the coast.

In summer, tropical rains and typhoons are frequent guests in the Dominican Republic. Therefore, it is better to go there in winter, from November to March, when the air warms up to a comfortable 24-30 degrees, and the weather is dry enough.
